Excerpt: CSI: Dark Motives (also known as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Dark Motives) is the sequel to the original game in the series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It features the main cast of characters from the television series of the same name: Gil Grissom, Sara Sidle, Nick Stokes, Warrick Brown, Catherine Willows, Greg Sanders, Jim Brass, and Al Robbins. In CSI: Dark Motives, the player again plays the role of a new recruit in the Las Vegas Crime Lab.
Excerpt: A few years ago, you could mention crime scene forensics, and people would look at you as though you offered them hearts of palm. Sure, they knew that there were people out there that did the dirty work of picking up evidence, but they hadn’t a clue what methods were used, or how important those that perform this job can be to the successful conclusion of a criminal case.
Excerpt: CSI: Dark Motives gives players the chance to work with the Las Vegas CSI unit to solve crimes through the use of technology and careful investigative techniques. While crimes on the show are solved with a careful application of forensic techniques and a lot of deductive reasoning, crimes in Dark Motives are primarily solved via the careful pixel hunting technique that is standard for many adventure games.
Conclusion: But in the end, CSI: Dark Motives doesn’t feel like a full-fledged sequel complete with innovation and improvement. It feels like a glorified expansion pack with five new, better cases, lots of new extras, and some tweaks to the difficulty options. The mechanics, the inherent difficulty, and the gameplay progression are all pretty much the same—for better or worse.
Excerpt: 369 Interactive and Ubi Soft teamed up to release CSI: Crime Scene Investigation , an interactive version of the hit television series, almost exactly a year ago. The game was polished and slick, but it was also easy and short (you could play it in well under five hours), and, as a result, it didn’t receive high marks. Now we have CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Dark Motives , and it’s longer and more difficult, but is it better? Keep reading to find out.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Dark Motives Review
23 March 2004
Excerpt: Almost a year to the day after Ubisoft released its first PC adventure game based on Jerry Bruckheimer and CBS' wildly popular crime-solving TV series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation , the company has churned out a sequel in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Dark Motives. Similar in design to VU Games' Law & Order games, the first CSI title focused simply on giving the player the chance to investigate and solve crimes that were comparably designed to the kinds of mysteries...
Excerpt: Czy kiedykolwiek marzyliście o tym, aby być śledczymi? Zapewne tak. Dlaczego?
Otóż chęć zostania policjantem nie pojawia się znikąd - odpowiedni popyt wytwarzają znakomite seriale kryminalne, takie jak np. NYPD Blue czy Law & Order. O polskich celowo nie wspominam, gdyż prezentują poziom nierealistycznie cukierkowy i żenujący.
Excerpt: Danske og internationale Tv-stationer har i adskillige år underholdt seerne med krimiserier, hvor tilskuerne enten kunne gætte med på mordgåderne, eller blot lade sig imponere af de dygtige Tv-detektivers uovertrufne sans for detaljer. Blandt de mest populære krimiserier for tiden er den amerikanske CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, som med tiden er blevet fuldt op af et computerspil af samme navn.
